Description of Organization:

First-Generation Law Student Association is a student based organization that creates a space for students who are the first in their families to attend law school. Acknowledging the challenges that come with being a first-gen law student, we provide programming, mentorship, and opportunities to help ease the law school experience.

Mission Statement:

Our purpose is to serve as an organizing force and support system for first-generation law students within and outside of law school as they tackle law school and the legal profession. Our four main approaches are: Academic Orientation, Social & Emotional Support, Financial Empowerment and Professional Development.
